Look at the PRETTY Kitchen

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

Painting cabinets is the new trend. Why replace when you can make your kitchen alive again with a fresh coat of paint. Your kitchen can become an extension of you. Using vibrant colors can make your cabinets "pop out". Looking at this picture, do you see the problem with this kitchen? 

 

So what is wrong with this kitchen? If you said the counter is cluttered, you would be right. One of the first rules in getting your home ready for sale, is to remove clutter. The kitchen is the heart of the home and should show perfectly.

 

In the end, I listed this home "as is". The seller was deeply concerned there would not be a buyer. They even considered it selling it for half it's value to one of those "we pay cash for your home" people. I came in and gave the seller a value "as is" and what it would be worth with a new kitchen, new bath and newly painted walls. The husband was sick and they needed a quick sale. They also did not have any money to remodel. Could I sell it "as is?" I sure could and I did. The seller was very happy in the end.

 

It is important that every Buyer or Seller should not just choose any agent, choose the BEST agent for the job. Having an agent that works for you is a must. 

 

My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

Good morning, Scott... the clutter is one thing... but what about that wall paper? :) Those we pay cash for your homes deals are nothing but scams if you ask me.

" As is, " can be the best scenario as you illustrate. The sellers were in very good hands with you.  Happy for them.

Hi Scott,
Those "We buy your house for cash quick sales" outfits are just looking to take advantage of people. The right buyer can see the potential and pay a fair price.

I'm sure those sellers enjoyed that bright kitchen but it's time for a facelift from the new buyer.  And, it looks like a new door would be in order, as well.

The flipper gang would look at that house and see potential, Scott.  You were wise to simply list it "As Is."  It can be difficult for the average seller to update and do what is necessary to get top dollar on price, without going into the hole on the cost of improvements.

Thank you Michael Jacobs and yes, that is my plan and what i can do very well. My goal is searching out sellers before they they start their journey so they can learn their choices without having to learn a lesson the hard way.

It is happening often Barbara Todaro as people just seem not to know they have choices.

Hi Scott- the key to the service you provide is that you take every seller on their merit and listen to their particular situation. In doing so, you offer hope to each one of your sellers.
